Question about Microwave Ovens
How do you replace the magnetron tube. My microwave runs but does not heat up. I suspect that the magnetron tube is gone bad. I have read some forum posts and my microwave has some of the same problems related to the tube. Thanks Andrew Exactly how do you change the magnetron tube? I have a GE Spacemaker model JVM 1430WD002? Was there a recall on this?
If you need to ask how to do this task, you may have no idea of the extremely high voltages that exist under the cover, even when unplugged. I would advise a competent person changes it for you.

Mmmm it's so easy,
First disconect the power, take the cover off, moslitly there would be 5 screws and two tab's on the top.
inside on the right hand side the magnetron it's a sylver box measuring about 4 in x 4 in x 5 in. It will have a plasic cover moslitly that would have to be remove first then on the magnetron there is 4 crews and one connector.
It should fall downard after.
If you have a power supply after the secondary , that may also be your problem.
